Two TC3 Courses Available at No Charge Through June 2016

Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) General Knowledge

This 3-hour course was designed for those interested in general commercial driver’s license (CDL) knowledge. This training contains the general knowledge and safe driving information that all commercial drivers should know. It is broken into three modules:

  • Module 1 reviews vehicle control, shifting gears, seeing the road, communicating, speed control, and space management.
  • Module 2 covers night driving, driving in cold and hot weather, mountain driving, and railroad crossings.
  • Module 3 discusses seeing hazards, driving and road emergencies, staying alert and fit to drive, and transporting hazardous materials.

    QCQA for Concrete Pavements

    This 1-hour module covers an overview of quality control/quality assurance (QC/QA) concepts and definitions. The learning objectives of this module are to provide users with a basic understanding of quality assurance, or QA, and quality control, or QC, terminology; QA and QC record-keeping requirements for most jobs; how to develop statistical quality control charts and why the use of such charts is desirable for maintaining quality control of the plant and paving operations; and common QA/QC tests performed for concrete paving projects.

    This module is part of a curriculum from the Integrated Materials and Construction Practices for Concrete Pavement manual developed through the National Concrete Pavement Technology Center at Iowa State University. The other Web-based training modules in this series include:

  • Design of Pavement
  • Hardened Concrete Properties – Durability
  • Fundamentals of Materials Used for Concrete Pavements
  • Incompatibility in Concrete Pavement Systems
  • Mix Design Principles
  • Early Age Cracking
  • Basics of Cement Hydration
  • Fresh Concrete Properties
  • Construction of Concrete Pavements
  • Troubleshooting for Concrete Pavements
